Construction of Motorways through Bosnia and Herzegovina, Possible Consequences on the Environment and Traffic Safety

Izgradnja autocesta kroz Bosnu i Hercegovinu, moguce posljedice za okolis i utjecaj na sigurnost prometa

Having in mind war destruction and political situation in the country, Bosnia and Herzegovina is facing a significant problem of the construction of modern road infrastructure. The disproportionate increase of the number of motor vehicles compared to the development of road infrastructure represents a great problem for road traffic safety in Bosnia and Herzegovina while the age of vehicle fleet has negative effect on the environmental protection. The construction of motorways represents an important segment of transport connection of north and south of Europe. In order to preserve the inherited natural resources, special attention must be paid to negative consequences of the motorways construction. Integration of the road on Corridor Vc Motorway in the already existing transport infrastructure must also have an effect on traffic accidents. Road accidents often result in severe consequences – great material damage and casualties. One can assume that the total number of traffic accidents will decrease when new sections of motorway become operational. In accordance with these possibilities and having in mind the experience of developed countries, it is necessary to implement various informational and surveillance systems that will reduce the occurrence of all kinds of traffic accidents, and in the situation when the accident occurs, its cause, course and identification of the actors is identified with ease.
